What you'll learn in this kids camp class:

The buildings in which you live, attend school, even the mall where you shop, have an incredible impact on your life. In this camp, students explore their surroundings and investigate how basic human needs, desires, and behaviors influence the design of architectural spaces. Emphasis is placed on the methods architects use to develop their design ideas while examining structures, materials, and technologies exemplified in historical and contemporary architecture. 

Using the city of Chicago and its world-renowned architecture as subject, free-hand perspective drawing, drafting, model making, and digital software programs are introduced. Visits to the Art Institute of Chicago and walking trips/on-site sketching at historic buildings by architects Louis Sullivan and Mies van der Rohe as well as contemporary structures including Frank Gehry's Jay Pritzker Pavillion and Renzo Piano's Modern Wing of the Art Institute supplement the studio experience.
